as defense secretary, moderate senator from nebraska, drawing fire mainly from republicans. all but negating the president's attempt to reach across the aisle. hagel has been criticized for his criticism what he calls the jewish lobby which he says has inintimidated members of congress. he is seen by be republicans being weak on iriran. the president may face complications in head of the homeland security john brennan to head the cia. he worked for the cia for 25 years. his selection to head the post not draws as much criticism as republicans see an opening to once again probe the ashes of the tragedy at the u.s. consulate in benghazi that cost the life of an american ambassador and three others. heather? heather: wendell goler in washington. thank you so much. sounds just like about everything including the kitsch -- kitchen sink in washingtoners for more let's talk with david drucker, associate politics he had tore roll call. there is great deal of thought for the news conference the president has a major point he wants to make. why now? why today, david? >> part of it the first term is wi

and say to republicans, you want to reign in defense or control the growth of defense, too, i don't care what the purpose is, but if you're going to mention kids, remind us that they are our future. right now, to your point, charlie, they will be stuck paying some very, very big bills, but, again, it's one thing to convince people of your age, charlie, of that, and another to get the message across to just innocent little kids, but that is going to be a paramount issue because as steve pointed out, it's going to address kids still unborn, that the rate we're going, how do you tell people, charlie, that for generations yet to come, none of this is sustainable, the rate we're going. >> well, i think it's important to frame the argument in terms of morality. the president mentioned morality, that it's the moral thing to do to get gun control. is it moral to spend children's morn before they had a chance to vote. is it moral to spend social security trust fund if the money does not exist? frame a moral pretext rather than a mathematic one. young people might be able to relate to that. they w

. >> congress authorizes spending. they order me to spend. they tell me you need to fund our defense department, at such and such a level. you need to send out social security checks. you need to make sure that you are paying to care for our veterans. they lay all of this out for me. and because they have the spending power. and so i am required by law to go ahead and pay these bills. separately, they also have to authorize the raising of the debt ceiling in order to make sure that those bills are paid. and so what congress can't do is tell me to spend x, and then say but we're not going to give you the authority to go ahead and pay the bills. >> the economist made a laundry list of what would happen if congressional republicans refused to raise the debt limit. failure to raise the debt ceiling would force immediate spending cuts equal for 6% of gdp. not only would that threaten to send the economy back into recession, it would also deprive many of money needed to meet their own obligations, setting off a chain reaction of defaults that could incite investors to dump their holdings, driving up

to being secretary of defense. they are very close and i don't know that obama had a deep relationship with him, but there other ways in which his fingerprints are on the president's policies and afghanistan won the argument. two things here i would add on guns specifically. biden in a way is -- a messenger for obama and sectors that may not trust him. he's got working class roots from industrial pennsylvania. he's catholic. i guess that the white house sees him as a messenger to people who might be skeptical and have ideas of what obama's agenda is and that biden could be a better messenger on this. i hate to bring up the 2016 number, but i think you may see more opportunities for biden to step out and prove himself in his own standing if he wants to run for president. >> the one thing i would add is nobody understands personal tragedy and is able to speak to that in an emotional compelling way as joe biden. going back to what you were saying about very little hope of this package or really much of anything, passing it is republican house. what do you think the white house strategy is

the defense industry, which is not to say that there aren't plenty of democrats whose bread is not being buttered by defense contractors, but if you look down at the breakdown of sequester cuts, defense gets hit with $55 billion in cuts, but they are much more severe, and as dave wood from the huffington post has said, it's like taking a meat clever to the defense industry. the nondefense cuts, 55 billion, same amount, but social security, retirement, veterans medicaid, snap, food stamps and jobless benefits are all exempt, steve. >> i think there's a sort of story here now that's been two years in the making where at some point this is going to have to come to a head. at some point president obama is going to have to call the bluff of the republicans. there were battles over continuing resolutions to fund the government in 2011. there was a summer of 2011 with the debt ceiling. there was the super committee. they were setting up the fiscal cliff. now we've got continuing resolution in march. now we've got the sequester, march 1st. now we've got debt ceiling all over again. one of these

% defense against the flu, this really raises your chances of not getting it. and if you do receive it, and you do actually get the flu, there's a good chance that the flu that you get, the symptoms are going to be much less. you'll be sick for fewer days and your fever will be -- your symptoms -- you'll feel much better. and it will not be anywhere near as severe as if you had not received the vaccine. >> right. so let me ask you, as somebody who has not gotten a flu shot because i have not yet. if i wait for new stocks to come in, are those vaccines better suited to the flu? do they then become more effective as the flu season goes on? >> no. the vaccine is the same vaccine that's being produced by the pharmaceutical companies. usually the world health organization will try to predict which strains are going to be the predominant strains. about a year in advance. and then it takes the pharmaceutical companies about -- probably about six months to produce the vaccine. once it's in production, it's not being modified until the subsequent flu season. >> the same vaccine you could have g

likely that an innocent will be killed as opposed to it being used for self-defense and it's just very, very intuitive. people understand that these weapons, assault weapons and high capacity clips, make these kinds of incidents so much more likely to result in massive homicides, and it wouldn't happen with a hammer and it wouldn't happen with a knife. >> but i think that's why we have to call it out for what it is. it's an attempt to deflect us from the real issue. that's all it is. >> it's about denuding what they know would actually in some measure affect this problem and they refuse to do it. >> it's also demonstrably wrong. >> yes. karen finney and julian epstein, as ever, thank you both. >>> next, the new thriller by acclaimed action director john speaker boehner. stay with us. >> so to even entertain the idea of this happening, the united states of america not paying its bills, is irresponsible. it's absurd.
